Several animals not reacting to being hit by an arrow?

Postby magnum_1973 » September 18th, 2017, 2:46 pm

So over the course of about a week and a half, I've seen some weird things happen in the game. I use my bow a lot and sit in a treestand every now and then. Some of the times I've sat in a treestand and have shot at a deer with a bow, the deer just stands in place. It doesn't flee, but it will look around like a deer would when it is about to spook. I've had this happen several times within the same game. I've never had this issue before. usually if it's a bodyshot, the animal will flee almost immediately.

Yesterday I was in VDB and I shot a red deer with my bow. Rather than looking around, it just stood in place without any reaction for a good 10 seconds and then it turned around to flee. I had this happen with a couple of other animals yesterday but I can't recall exactly the species.

I would provide you with the coordinates and all, but this has been happening on a few different reserves with different animals. I want to say the deer species is mostly affected with this? I know for certain that I've experienced this with whitetail, blacktail, and red deer. If this isn't enough to help you out, I believe I have a clip or two that I recorded that would better show you what I'm talking about.
